To Those Who Have (or want to) Read Daisy Chain…


…a special message from Mary DeMuth:

Dear reader,

I’m so thankful you’re taking the time to read Daisy Chain. The book birthed from several conversations with a friend who experienced an abusive home, and yet, since the father held a prestigious position in ministry, no one knew or suspected anything. This made me mad. And when I’m mad, I write.

I wondered how someone’s picture of God could form naturally if his/her father figure showed this kind of dichotomy: living as an upstanding Christian citizen in public, yet a raging violent man at home. And in the midst of that, how would a family with such secrets ever find redemption in the light?

Daisy Chain is my exploration of these issues. I didn’t write it to impugn or to harass. I wrote it to shed light on a sad reality for some families. So that readers would no longer feel alone. So that God’s redemption could shine on such a dark family canvas.

I like to say Daisy Chain is like an Oprah book, but with hope. Full of rich settings only the South can muster, unforgettable and quirky characters, and the heart of a fourteen-year-old boy who wants to be a man, Daisy Chain is one of those books that sticks with you after you turn the last page.

Thanks again for reading this book!

With joy,
Mary E. DeMuth
